Am i ok to ask for legal advice with no cost?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Im in california

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Im just trying to seek some answer involving my place of employment

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just to know if what my employer did was legal for them to not notify me that they no longer have a position for me after returning from short term disability

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
